The institute of Materials and Surface Engineering (IMSE) was founded in 2021 by combining the Research Laboratory of Functional Materials and Technologies (RLFMT), the institute of inorganic chemistry and the institute of silicate materials. IMSE focuses on the development of functional materials for energy and environmental remediation. The currently ongoing topics include triboelectric nanogenerators, photocatalytic materials, clay based ceramic materials for water purification, smart windows for infrared transmittance modulation, and water electrolysis.
